Well, it's been 3 months since we moved down to Cedar City. We've had a lot of fun here so far. Cedar City always has festivals going on. The latest was the local Sheep Festival, which I heard was not too exciting. Starting this weekend, the local deer hunting season has started which brings with it bright orange jackets and lots of veal marsala.
Something strange happened a couple of weeks ago. A semi full of live pigs tipped over about 5 miles north of here, spilling live and "fresh bacon" all over the road. I heard that pigs were running around everywhere.
Finding certain necessities can sometimes be a challenge, since the only chain store within 45 minutes of us is a Super Walmart. At least it's Super. There are 2 movie theaters, and since Scott works at the bank where the theater owner banks, he's been trying to buddy-up with the owner so we can get into movies for free. (Apparently this is not too hard to do. Most people who come into the bank don't even need to show ID because everyone that works at the bank knows everyone that lives in town. Scott hasn't quite memorized everyone yet. Prime example: Someone with the name of the movie theater owner came into the bank and told Scott that work was a little hectic. Scott replied with, "Yeah, I bet the movie theater gets a little crazy sometimes." The guy kinda laughed and then drove off. Scott's co-worker then told him that that man owned one of the local car dealerships, not the movie theaters. Oh well.
School has been going well for us. I should be done in May with another degree, an AAS in Interior Design, and Scott will have his Masters in Professional Communications in May 2008. My classes are all going well. It's been interesting to learn how to weave on a loom. I almost feel like I'm in black and white when I'm doing it.
Scott has been asked by one of his professors to co-author a paper that they hope to publish, which he is really excited and stresses out about. He is also teaching an undergraduate communications course which is going really well. The only problem is that he gets a little too emotionally involved when a kid wants to fail. Scott is slowly figuring out that he can't make anyone get an A, they have to want to get an A.
We are looking forward to having a Halloween party at our place. We hope that some people actually show up. If anyone has any good party ideas, please let us know.
That's about it for now. Thanks for checking up on us!
